Overview

Martin Ritt has been hailed as the United States’s greatest maker of social films. From No Down Payment early in his career to Stanley and Iris, his last production, he delineated the nuances of American society. In between were other social statements such as Hud, Sounder, The Spy Who Came In From the Cold, Norma Rae, and The Great White Hope.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ritt was a leftist who embraced various radical movements in the 1930s and, largely because of this involvement, was blacklisted from television in the early 1950s. In this biography, Jackson (history, Western Kentucky U.) contends that Ritt was the greatest maker of social movies up to this point in American history and that, while cinema was his method, social concerns and morality were the substance of his work.
